The Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation is thrilled to announce that the grand prize for its Chase the Ace: Rider Edition presented by Viterra has hit more than $100,000.
The Foundation started the raffle in late June and has already handed out more than $60,000. Each week, one person’s name is drawn, automatically winning the weekly jackpot and a chance to select the Ace of Spades, Cody Fajardo card to win the now $100,000 jackpot. The lottery is now in its 13th week with 40 cards left. Fans wishing to be a part of this week’s draw are able to purchase tickets up until 4 p.m. Friday. If the raffle sells out without the Ace being pulled the winner could win a total prize of $1.2 million.
“We’re incredibly grateful for the support we continue to receive from Rider Nation. They’ve shown up every Friday, bought their tickets for the draw and we’ve been able to give out great prizes so far” said Cindy Fuchs, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation. “With the jackpot being over $100,000 now, it will get more exciting each week and we can’t wait for someone to pull out the Ace of Spades. In the end, it’s really our community that wins and we’re glad we can help make a difference.”
Proceeds from Chase the Ace go towards the Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation and the programs they support including the Northern Saskatchewan Football League, Amateur Football, KidSport and other youth-focused health, sport and education programs.
Every Friday tickets go on sale at 5:00pm for the following week’s draw. Sales continue throughout the week upping the weekly prize and the jackpot until 4:00 pm the following Friday. At 4:30, winners are announced on 620 CKRM and riderville.com/foundation and the draw can be viewed on the Foundation Facebook page live and the process starts all over again.
Fans can buy one ticket for $10, 10 tickets for $20 or 50 tickets for $50. Track the jackpot and weekly prizing and find out more information at riderville.com/foundation.
Tickets are only available to residents of Saskatchewan. License #: LR20 0011
